It’s the beginning of a new year and time to start making new memories for 2017! What has always been on your bucket list that you have never gotten around to doing? It’s a good time to start a list of things you want to accomplish throughout 2017, whether it’s to do with your career, finances, personal goals, or even just for leisure! Career and financial goals are important and they keep us moving forward, but what we do on our days off when we’re not chasing the carrot is just as important! Maybe in 2017 your goal is to work on a healthy work life balance…. That said, for this month’s newsletter we wanted to go over fun and exciting activities you can do this winter with your family and/or friends that can help you unwind, relax, and enjoy life.

If you don’t have time to research new and exciting things happening in your city, you are in luck. We have compiled a list of a few things to do in your city and places that you could be possibly traveling this winter!
